Course Description

This is the fifth and final module in a five-part series related to intimate partner violence (IPV), also referred to as spousal/partner abuse (SPA) and domestic violence (DV). Within the series, this final module discusses IPV among specific populations including communities of color, the elderly, individuals with disabilities, LGBTQ communities, military and law enforcement communities, and immigrant communities. There is also a section that highlights the effects of the worldwide stay at home orders (in response to the public health crisis) on rates of IPV. This module incorporates online content, case vignettes, web-based video clips, and related resources.
